I'm Doc_Flanigan. I've been lurking on the forums and discord for a while. During SOL Citizen's event, HYPE Digi-Bar Citizen, I got a chance to hang with some TEST-ies on Zoom and had a lot of fun. I decided to make it official by submitting an ORG application on the website. Today, I joined the Citizen Con live stream on Discord and followed that up with some hospital simulator in the PTU afterwards with Lefty and others. I'm happy to find a group of people that are just as bad at this game as I am. I like beer, shenanigans and explosions, usually in that order.

Welcome to the TEST party.

Do you have any preferred ships or game play options / possibilities that you looking forward to enjoying?
Thanks for the welcome!

Exploration gameplay and The Aquila is what brought me to Star Citizen years ago. I bought her with LTI early on and I still have her.

Other than Exploration I’m very excited about Salvage and Repair game loops. The Reclaimer is on my wish list for the anniversary sale this year.

I own many ships (76% to Space Marshall) but my daily drivers are the Aquila, Harbinger and MSR.

Awesome sauce. I'm sure that you'll reach Space Marshall eventually. Just know that the moment you do, the F8C at the next tier will start seductively winking towards you. I speak from personal experience. lol

When I first started I always expected to make it to High Admiral, but never thought I’d be a Grand Admiral. Then the Carrack happened. Then an M2. Then the Fortuna MSR pack. Then the Perseus. Then a couple of Vanguards. Then the Liberator and a 400i.

Sheesh, I think you’re right! That F8C just made me do it all!

What about you? What are your preferred ships or gameplay options?
In general, I find cargo hauling peaceful, unfortunately CIG has nerfed trading for quite a few patches. I've heard rumors that will be fixed to a degree soon though. Thus I enjoy ships that can do that well, like the Maxx, C2 & eventually BMM when released. I suspect that it'll be quite interesting to be walking around the in ship bazaar watching the players & NPC's purchase various things from the shops. I'm honestly hoping that I'll be able to discuss things with the patrons to learn what sorts of things they're looking for, so that I can better learn what items would sell in which markets better to be prepared for them in future stops there.

I'm definitely looking forward to the dev's flushing out exploration, I'm a long time fan of Star Trek. So I've got a 315p, DUR, 400i, 600i Exploration & Carrack ready to go.

I also think that bounty hunting could be a series of fun adventures to embark on. Which is why I've got the Avenger Stalker, Hawk & Cutlass Blue in my hangar waiting for when we'll be able to capture bounties alive for that bonus rep & payment. I'm not sure if there will be any sort of larger prisoner transport ships though since the Blue can store somewhere around a dozen individuals at a time.

I love the "luxury" aesthetic in ships when available, so I've gathered a number of the Origin ships & have an original Emerald Phoenix bundle in my buybacks to restore when possible.

At some point I'll most likely get into mining, so I'll pick up a Prospector eventually. I currently have a Roc so I'll have a way to practice until then.

I'm hoping that eventually CIG will put both swimming as well as fishing into the game.

As you might be able to tell from this, I've got my shiny gold Space Marshall armor shined up for special occasions & have felt the call of the F8C for a few years. LoL

Heya, Doc! :o7:
Hey Slim! I just read your intro questions, and it reminded me that I never filled mine out... hope it's not too late.


Where you from stranger? - Tennessee

What drew you to Star Citizen? - Kept track of it from 2014 on, but never had the extra money to 'invest'. Always loved the Aquila. Later, found a friend of mine, @FireMedicSlim was a backer and that's all it took. Reached High Admiral within the first year, Grand Admiral since May 2020 and 76% to Space Marshall now.

What do you look forward to most in Star Citizen? (PVP, Exploration, etc) - Exploration, Salvage / Repair and Explosions... massive Explosions.

What was the first game you remember playing? Frogger on Atari / MechWarrior on PC

What other games do you play? - CyberPunk, Farming Simulator (srsly), TrailMakers, Astroneer, PA: Titans, The Witcher, SnowRunner.

How did you first hear about Test Squadron and what convinced you to join? - Found TEST on the RSI site. Joined the forums and Discord channel to hang out for a while. Officially petitioned to join during the 2951 Digital Bar Citizen event.

Picard or Kirk? - Neither. Maxwell Smart is more my style.
